Bandit Brass Necklace
Bandit is Rice Baby’s second cousin once removed. Bandit specializes in the acquisition of stuff from others. A repo monkey of sorts, but with a focus on the unwanted. Bandit steals away worries and sorrows for free!
To create this brass monkey pendant necklace, I first drew Bandit and then sculpted him out of clay. I gave my clay version to Andu, who carved a miniature version out of wax. We then take the wax sculpture to an outside facility to have it cast in solid brass. Ardi, the silversmith at our workshop, takes it from there, cleaning up the casting and fastening the loop on his tail to the brass chain.
Designed by Spencer Hansen, this silver plated Bandit pendant measures 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm and hangs on a 70 cm brass chain.
